    Thanks for your responce.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your responce.
    You are right.
    The source installation media was for sun-solaries.
    I have downloaded media for sun-solaries and linux into same directory. That is created a problem. I was trying install informix using sun-solaries media on linux platform.

    After taking correct installation media, It went through installation process.

    Thanks
